Czarnolas [t͡ʂarˈnɔlas] is a village in the administrative district of Gmina Policzna, within Zwoleń County, Masovian Voivodeship, in east-central Poland.[1] It lies approximately 12 kilometres (7 mi) north-east of Zwoleń and 100 km (62 mi) south-east of Warsaw.

The village's name roughly translates to "black forest". From 1975 to 1998, it was in Radom Voivodeship.

Czarnolas is famous as the residence of the Polish Renaissance poet, Jan Kochanowski.

The village belonged to the Kochanowski family for a century, then frequently changed owners. In 1830, on the site of the poet's manor house, which had burned down, a Neogothic chapel was erected. In 1961, in the Jabłonowski family's 19th-century manor house, within a picturesque garden, was established the Jan Kochanowski Museum, before which stands a statue of the poet by M. Welter.
